My new favorite Pho restaurant in the 604.

To make it short, I found a new Pho place I'd never been to that absolutely wow'd me. I honestly give this Pho place 9/10, and literally found nothing wrong.
I'd seriously urge all of you to go try it out. The broth is literally on par with that of Pho Tam out in Surrey, and their spring rolls were just as good as Bao Chau on Hastings.
The broth wasn't salty and very mild while at the same time punching great flavor.
I really don't know how else to quantify this place, but I'd really recommend any other Pho enthusiasts on here to give it a try and share your opinion.

Aside from flavor, the prices were damned cheap - $6.59 for a large, $1.49 for an iced coffee. The service was also impressive as they address you as "my friends" when you come in.

The place is called "Vietnamese Restaurant" and its located several stores down from the southeast corner of Main/25th.

I thought Pho Tam was the best place I've been too.
I gotta check this place out.

Thanks

Haha, yeah he's hilarious. Very friendly and nice guy. Food is really good there as well.

The place is located right beside 'The Grind'.

I take Pho seriously. To achieve a 10/10 score, the Pho would have to trigger an orgasm in me.

I have the full report with pictures on the last page of the thread "What did you eat today and rate it" with the address.

To get to it, you need to go to the Chinatown in Paris. Take the orange 7 metro line to Tolbiac, which is at the bottom right area of Zone 1.
When you get out of Tolbiac station you'll be at an intersection with a Mcdonalds on one corner, and a pharmacy on the other side of the street.
Walk on Rue de Tolbiac (the smaller road, not big road) going past the pharmacy until you hit the next road, Rue de Choisy. Turn right here, and walk about 100 meters down, and the restaurant is on the left.

On the other direction on Rue de Choisy, you'll see another Pho place that isn't as good as Indochine but is open super early like 8AM everyday; its mediocre in comparison but blows away most Pho in Vancouver.

At Indochine I stuck with the large Pho Dac Biet, which is about 8 Euros i think. Take photos and thank me later!!!!

BTW; I'm actually in Paris for a weekend in October, I wouldn't mind meeting up with another Vancouverite for Pho!
